Start my belt and it tries to start but immediately stops


hi, its seems like the belt on the motor has either slipped or just needs to be tightened more, best way to find out is open the front cover showing the motor, step on the treadmill and see what happens. if the motor is still spinning and the belt isnt then its the belt, check the tension if it is loose just tighten the belt. if the belt and motor are fine then its the running belt that needs to be tightened, to check this just put your hand under the belt and try lifting it, if you can easily lift its 2 0r 3 inches then its ok, but if you can lift it alot more this will need to be tightened, hope i have helped.

hi it seem like the motor is fine but the belt on the motor either needs to be tightened or replaced. best way to find out is to take off the front cover showing the motor and step on the treadmill. if the belt isnt moving but the motor is spinning then you need to replace the belt on the motor. or you can try to adjust the belt. i had the same problem, i just tightened the belt and everything works fine.

When i start running it isnt a steady flow of the belt there is jerks every few seconds making it very hard to run and almost is enough to make you fall what do you think the problem might be


It sounds like you either have a loose walk belt or a slipping front drive pully. The walk belt shoould be tightened so that you can pull up on the edge of the belt about 2 inches. If that is OK, pull the motor cover, start the treadmill and walk trying to stop the belt with you feet. Watch the drive belt this time (the small one going from the drive motor to the front drive roller), if this belt stops, you need to tighten motor, or replace if it is older/wornout. If the drive belt keeps turning fine, watch the front roller and see if the pully connected to the drive belt keeps turning while the roller connected to the walk belt stops, if so you need a new front drive roller.


Hope this helps

Belt runs with hesitation. stops during rotation and starts again. like it's slipping


If it does this while you are exercising it is one of two problems. First make sure that the walk belt is adjusted correctly( you should be able to pick up the outer edge of belt about 1.5 inches), if the belt is tight enough, then remove the front cover ( 3 screws at fron and 2 or 3 under), start the treadmill with cover off and watch as you walk, see if the drive belt(small one going from motor to front roller),is still turning after you try to STOP the walk belt with your feet. If the drive belt still turns, see if the front roller stops but the drive pully (other end of drive belt)still turns. If so you need a front drive roller assy. Od if the belt(drive) quits while the motor stays running, adjust the motor, or replace the drive belt.

Belt squeaking and hesitating when I run


Before beginning this repair: Check to make certain that the drive belt requires adjustment. Check out belt slipping instructions or with the motor cover removed, walk on the belt normally and try to stall the belt to make it slip. Be careful during this test. If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled. If the motor, drive belt, and front roller continue to turn when the walking belt is stalled, the problem is with the walking belt slipping on the front roller. If the drive belt continues to turn but the front roller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley.
Step 1- Find the motor mounts. Many motors in Icon treadmills have a main pivot joint in which a bolt runs the full length of the motor mount. This bolt will require loosening to provide maximum adjustability. Some models have a single jack bolt and others have an auto tensioner. Single jack bolts are the easiest to adjust. Step 2- Find the set bolt(s) on the motor. This is typically run through only one side of the motor mount or may be on both sides but it does not run the full length of the mounting. Loosen this bolt(s) but do not remove. Jack bolt models will have flat mounts and may contain up to four bolts. Step 3- Look for a bolt that will tension the motor. If it has this bolt, it typically runs in the same direction parallel with the drive and walking belts. If your treadmill is not equipped with this bolt, skip to Step 4. If your treadmill is equipped with this bolt (very few are) the repair will only require one person. Using 2 7/16" wrenches, make a few turns to this bolt, tighten the bolts from Steps 1 and 2 and test your treadmill for slipping. If belt continues to slip, repeat Steps 1, 2, & 3. If a second attempt does not repair the problem, skip to Step 5. Step 4- If your treadmill is not equipped with a bolt as described in Step 3, the drive belt must be tensioned by hand. While one person applied increased tension to the drive belt, the other person should tighten the motor set bolt(s) that are described in Step 2. Tighten the bolt from Step 1 and test. If the problem is not corrected, repeat Steps 1, 2, & 4 and retest. If problem persists, skip to Step 5. Step 5- If you have arrived at this step, let's make sure you have a drive belt tension problem. With the motor cover removed, walk on the belt normally and try to stall the belt to make it slip. Be careful during this test. If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled. If the motor, drive belt, and front roller continue to turn when the walking belt is stalled, the problem is with the walking belt slipping on the front roller. the problem. Another possibility is that the drive belt has worn down. In some cases, belt dressing may help correct the problem. If not, the drive belt must be replaced. Step 6- The belt should be able to be turned by hand at approximately a 90 degree angle from its normal operating position

If the walking belt slips when walked on. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each side of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

Belt won't move


does is just not move when you're standing on it, or not even move when you're not standing on it. It may be a simple belt adjustment or if the motor is running but there's no track movement you may be looking at a loose/broken drive belt. Take the cover off, start it up and look at the motor/drive pulley assembly. If the motor turns and the front roller doesn't, tension the drive motor by moving it back. If the front roller turns but the track doesnt, do a track adjustment as per your users manual.

Belt skips


take the cover off, if the front drive roller continues to turn when the running belt stops, tension the running belt by using the rear adjustment screws. One full turn on each side should do it. If the front roller stops turning but the motor doesn't, tension the drive belt by adjusting the motor back.
